KATHMANDU, April 26: Philanthropist and co-founder of BlinkNow, Maggie Doyne’s memoir titled ‘Between the Mountain and the Sky: A Mother’s Story of Love, Loss, Healing, and Hope’ is set to be released in Nepal and other South Asian countries. The book will be launched at an event on April 29, at 11 AM at Hotel Himalaya, Kupondole, Lalitpur.
A statement issued by the BlinkNow Foundation on Wednesday says that the book highlights Doyne’s inspirational coming of age story spanning over a decade since she journeyed from her comfortable middle-class New Jersey home for the college gap year that forever changed the trajectory of her life. When Doyne first arrived in Surkhet, Nepal, the area was just coming out of a civil war that left families in poverty and many children orphaned on the streets. After an unexpected encounter with a Nepali girl breaking rocks in a quarry, Doyne decided to invest her life savings of $5,000 to buy a piece of land and open the Kopila Valley Children’s Home with a vision to care for, comfort, educate, and empower the children of the community, reads the statement.
Doyne has been globally recognized for her community-based and sustainable initiatives abroad. Doyne has gone on to open a school, health clinic, women’s center, and more, and was recognized for her remarkable initiatives as a 2015 CNN Hero of the Year.
